What is Member Level Membership?
Don't miss out!
This level of membership is aimed at professionals who want to achieve the highest professional standards.
Employers will know that when they work with a person who is a FAAM Member, they are dealing with someone who is at the top of their profession.
It demonstrates you have relevant skills and knowledge, you are commitment towards CPD, the Code of Ethics and your development, and ensures you remain relevant and employable.
As a Member you'll be able to use the MFAAM post-nominal and access all the membership benefits and resources.
All Members are required to:
Comply with our Code of Ethics
There are two routes to this level of membership;
Route 1 (Member Application): For those holding the BOHS Certificate of Competence in Asbestos (CoC) and also having 5 years’ experience at a professional level.
Route 2 (Member Special Application): Is for those with extensive professional experience. (As a guide this will be 10 years). This route will be available for a time limited period only following the launch of FAAM in October 2017 and is currently open.
For both routes, applicants will be expected to demonstrate that they meet the competency requirements but completing an application form and attaching supporting evidence.
The joining process for the two routes to this level of membership are as follows
Route 1 (Member Application): Applicants are required to submit an application form (which can be downloaded from this page). Once the application is approved, applicants will be invited to attend a professional discussion. On successfully completing the professional discussion, the applicant will be awarded Member level and be invited to subscribe to membership.
Route 2 (Member Special Application): Applicants are required to submit an application form (which can be downloaded from this page). Once the application is approved, the applicant will be awarded Member level and be invited to subscribe to membership.
Applications for this level of membership are subject to FAAM Board approval (for both route 1 and route 2).
